150 million people quit the CCP

16/01/2014

(Minghui.org) More than 150 million people have posted their resignations from the Chinese Communist Party (CCP), Youth League, and Young Pioneers on the Epoch Times website as of November 13th, 2013. Since the beginning of this year, the average daily number of withdrawals from the Party and its two youth organisations has remained stable at around 60,000.

Ranging from average citizens to government officials, from low-ranking soldiers to high-level military leaders, from school teachers to college professors, and from police officers to diplomats, people from all walks of life are declaring their intention to sever ties with the Party.

It is apparent that abandoning the Party has become a trend in China, and Chinese people are peacefully ushering in a future China, free of Party rule.

Nine Commentaries on the Communist Party starts the movement to quit the Party and attracts international attention

Nine Commentaries on the Communist Party, an Epoch Times editorial series published in late 2004, quickly spread to many parts of China and prompted multitudes of people to withdraw from the Party. Many Party members have courageously announced their withdrawals publicly, and banners reading “Heaven Will Destroy the CCP” and “Quitting the Party Will Ensure Safety and Bring Blessings” can be seen everywhere.

The quitting the Party movement is also receiving wide support from the international community. The Global Service Centre for Quitting the Chinese Communist Party was set up in the US to help facilitate this withdrawal movement. This organisation has many branches at well-known tourist attractions in Europe and elsewhere, to help visitors from China to quit the Party right there.

Such centres also issue certificates to those who have quit. The US and many other democratic countries recognise such certificates as valid and legal evidence which can be used in immigration applications. The Nine Commentaries has even become an important reference for US immigration officers in deciding whether to grant certain immigration statuses to applicants.

New trend: quitting the Party with real names and in groups

When the quitting the Party movement first began, people usually quit individually using aliases in place of their real names. Nine years later, more and more people are quitting the Party using their real names, and in groups. Frequently, all members of a single family or a certain social group or workplace issue joint statements to declare their intentions to break free from the Party.

Pan Renqiang, former judge of Wuhan City Intermediate Court in Hubei Province, expressed his desire to quit the Party in an interview with New Tang Dynasty Television (NTD). He gave his real name without hesitation. Additionally, six high-ranking military officials put out a joint statement quitting the Party and indicated they would never point their guns at innocent people..

The CCP is not China

The Nine Commentaries details the totalitarian, violent, deceptive, and brutal nature of the CCP, and concludes that the Party opposes humanity.

Untold numbers of practitioners have been sent to forced labour camps, prisons, and brainwashing centres, and more than 3,700 have died as a result of torture after former Party dictator Jiang Zemin launched his persecution of Falun Gong in 1999.

It was revealed in March 2006 that at least 30 concentration camps, including Sujiatun in Liaoning Province, had committed the heinous crime of harvesting organs from living practitioners and selling them for profit.

The CCP is not China. The Nine Commentaries show that the Party culture is against traditional Chinese culture. If history is any indication, all violent rulers face doom. The snowballing numbers of people quitting the Party show that the Party is heading in this direction.
